Default ' Toon Trip

My sons and I bought 3 used 9' pontoon boats, and got to try them out on a local reservoir this weekend.
Here's what we learned :
1. They are a lot of fun.
2. The wake from passing ski boats is not bad. Much better than fishing on a kayak.
3. Easy to row, goes straight and fast.
4. Can't make it go straight using an electric trolling motor.
5. Casting a flyrod while seated is fairy easy.
6. You can haul 3 pontoon boats on a small flat trailer and launch them in minutes.
7. Did I mention thay are a lot of fun ? They are !
mcnerney and scott_g like this.

Recently picked up a Scadden pontoon and love it. Very stable and the leaning bar is very stable for stand up fishing to stretch the legs out. Have been in a few local lakes and have drifted a couple rivers and so far so good.

I agree, a toon just opens up so much more water to be able to fish to. I love them!
